Leaves can be recycled at home in your food and garden bin.

Other garden waste that can be recycled at home includes:

  • flowers and plants
  •  grass cuttings
  • hedge clippings
  • twigs and small branches
  • weeds (no Japanese Knotwood or Himalayan Balsam)

You can also recycle garden waste at your local Recycling Centre. If you are taking food and garden waste to a Recycling Centre, it must be separated. If you take a mixed bag of food and garden waste it will have to go in the non-recyclable containers. This is because the Recycling Centres are not licensed to accept food waste.

You can also compost your garden waste in a home compost bin. To find out more visit Let’s compost now.
